Storm Changes

What a difference the wild stormy weather has done to our countryside,beaches and town life here in the U.K.

Buildings have had their roofs blown off; trees have crashed onto roads and people’s property . The rivers over-flowing causing floods with water entering homes.

Even the coast line has seen dramatic changes with cliffs falling and waves, extremely high, crash on to proms, causing damage and chaos.

This winter will be one to remember for a very long time.

Sunday 16 February saw a spell of dry, no high winds or rain and the sun came out.

My son and I with the dogs visited Langland Bay Gower. Having seen photos of the beach nothing prepared us for what was in store. The once sandy beach was full of pebbles and large stones. We had to struggle over these to find just a small bit of sand.

This particular beach is noted for its stretch of beautiful sand and very popular with its old renovated beach huts lining the prom. The following photo shows you the beach after the storms. Sunday morning there were adults and children doing a ‘Litter Pick’. I do not know who these two are.

  1. Sunday was a lovely day wasn’t it? But we are back to the dark days of rain now for a while. At least the wind has dropped.
    Hope you and Spotty can get out and about again soon 🙂
